Cops file class action lawsuit over OT

Posted: Updated:

Guam - A dozen police officers have filed a lawsuit against the Guam Police Department and the director of the Department of Administration. The officers represent more than 300 men and women on the force who have worked 43-hour workweeks without receiving overtime pay for the three extra hours they worked between March 1998 until December 2010.

The plaintiffs contend they have been denied just compensation and have asked the court to order GPD and DOA to calculate and pay the amount of overtime that is due to them for work performed over 40 hours each week.  Additionally the officers have asked that interest be applied at a rate of 10% per year.

The lawsuit is similar to a case filed by a number of officers with the Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency that won their case to be compensated overtime for any hours worked beyond the regular 40 hours a week.
